WHAT HAPPENED IN JULY
NoBe Everywhere

NoBe Everywhere had over 900 Campers from 15 councils, and 9 states. We had scouts from; California, Colorado, Georgia, and South Carolina join us to work on the over 40 merit badges offered this summer.
Camp Cub-Connect

Thank you to all our wonderful campers who joined us for our Virtual-Hybrid Day Camp.
We had a blast, but the Summer isn't over yet!
We are offering Cub-Connect Adventures To-Go .
Perfect to take with you on a family trip or to catch up on a week that your missed of camp. The boxes will help you earn 2 rank advancements! They also come with Arts & Crafts, Nature, Scout Skills, and a Bonus activity. Scouts can work at their own pace as they watch the prerecorded videos.

Open to all youth entering grades 1-5 in September.

Boxes can be shipped to you or picked up at the Service Center in Oakland, NJ. (25 Ramapo Valley Rd)
Boxes can be picked-up starting Friday, August 7.

NoBe Quarter Master
While the campers tuned in virtually for NoBe Everywhere the staff was at camp doing program and working around the camp. The NoBe staff worked to help replace half the roof of the Quarter Master with a special thanks to Bob Johnson, Todd Scheuren, Eric Rogers, Joe Justis, and Anthony DeVitis.
The BSA cited unresolved issues surrounding the ongoing pandemic as the reasoning behind the difficult decision.
